This page contains information on the work of the OECD and Mexico in the area of competition law and policy.
This report documents procurement regulations and practices in Mexico's main electricity company (Comisión Federal de Electricidad) and makes policy recommendations in key procurement areas.
This is the second year running that we have hosted this OECD Forum on Competition and Regulation. We hope to continue consolidating it as a benchmark for the commitment of the Mexican authorities to competition and regulatory improvement. I want to thank Secretary Guajardo for his leadership in bringing about this second edition.

Many of Mexico’s product markets remain among the most heavily regulated in the OECD. These structural flaws adversely affect the ability of firms to effectively compete in the markets and hamper innovation, efficiency and productivity. Against this backdrop, this report analyses Mexican legislation in the medicine (production, wholesale, retail) and meat sector (animal feed, growing of animals, slaughterhouses, wholesale and retail) along the vertical supply chain. Using the OECD Competition Assessment Toolkit to structure the analysis, the report reviews 228 pieces of legislation and identifies 107 legal provisions which could be removed or amended to lift regulatory barriers to competition. The analysis of the legislation and of the Mexican sectors has been complemented by research into international experience and consultation with stakeholders from the public and private sectors. The OECD has developed recommendations to remove or modify the provisions in order to be less restrictive for suppliers and consumers, while still achieving Mexican policy makers’ initial objectives. This report identifies the potential benefits of the recommendations and, where possible, provides quantitative estimates.
In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, an international consensus emerged that financial institutions should be regulated more strongly to improve their resilience. In December 2017, the OECD held a roundtable discussion on co-operation between competition agencies and regulators in the financial sector with a focus on the 10 years since the last financial crisis.

Le Forum mondial sur la concurrence a examiné dans quelle mesure la concurrence est suffisante ou la condition nécessaire pour que la démocratie propère, en particulier lorsque l'on considère les pays en transition vers des systèmes démocratiques de gouvernement. À mesure que l’application de la concurrence évolue, cela modifie-t-il l’ampleur à laquelle cette derniere pourrait soutenir la démocratie? Plus sur cette discussion.
